’21 NFL Pick’em Week 16

There are only three weeks left in Pick’Em, and 7 Rings are still sitting at the top of the standings. Their lead has had many ups and downs recently, which even led to a drop to second place a few weeks ago.

The competition is catching up after a handful of subpar weeks, but a solid 12-4 week restored a point cushion the boys hope to ride to the finish line.
